I have never been here before

And it’s far too late to turn back now.

    Nor are we ready for you to fly away, Chaz. The world needs all the bon mots it can muster.

    Still, one learns. (The moment one stops learning, I contend, is the moment the lid should be closed.)

    Some time in the past year or so I observed that death begins when learning ends, which I gather looks at the question from the other direction. Nor is it a matter of mere philosophy; any critter in the wilderness depends for survival on its ability to adapt to a new situation, whole species can be wiped out by failure to adapt.

    I didn’t claw my way to the top of the food chain to spend decades using knowledge I only picked up over the course of a few years spent in school.

    Happy birthday, Charles, and many happy returns of the day. I didn’t realize that we were two weeks shy of a decade apart in age.
